Sunday Lunch mid way to Yorkshire

Booked a table in advance for this pub about two miles off the A1M close to Stamford Nice looking pub just outside the village of Easton on the Hill. Set Sunday lunch, plenty of choice at every course and of course excellent roast beef. We were fairly early, so service was quick before the pub... read more

Today we stopped for lunch. It was wonderful and excellent food. The service was also excellent. I had a jolly good steak and my husband had a very good fish meal. We had a long leisurely lunch. The atmosphere was good and we were given plenty of time to choose and sit with coffee after our meal. We feel it... More

We visited for an evening meal on a Saturday night. We should have spotted the warning signs of an empty car park but having not visited for a very long time thought we should give it the benefit of doubt. We were rushed to our table on arrival and presented with a pleasing and varied menu. The scallops for starters... More

We had not visited the Exeter Arms for some considerable time and decided to pay a quick visit during a recent visit to the area. It was good to see that the Pub was very much the same as our last visit there were customers enjoying their drinks in the gardens (it was a very hot day). On entering the... More

Had heard great things and visited on Father's day. They could just manage to get us in at 3:30 although there appeared to be plenty of room. You might allow them an excuse that it was a late lunch, but, very disappointed that the staff allowed such a tasteless, tired bag of reheated left-overs to be served. I had hoped... More

I come here for a business meeting several times a year. Staff are always very friendly and food has always been of a good standard. A good variety of sandwiches for a snack lunch as well as other more substantial meals. Always look forward to coming back.

I live locally to the Exeter Arms and have been concerned about recent reviews about this restaurant. It's always had great potential. Came here for a Saturday night meal with my husband and was pleasantly surprised. We were served at the bar and at the table by Tyler, a young waiter, who understood how to be polite and friendly -... More

Booked to eat in their restaurant for an important event on Bank holiday monday. Booking accepted on the phone, When I arrived at the arranged time they were closed. I have complained twice by email but received no reply. Dont trust them if they book you a place, they could still be closed

Our friend lives nearby- but had never been here. She booked a table for 1pm for 4 of us. A very sweet lady took us to a very nice table in the conservatory. As it was a very warm day we asked if we could sit in the dining room as it was cooler. This was no problem and we... More
